How to Access Bitbucket from a HostPapa VPS

The following procedure for cloning my Bitbucket repository to the HostPapa server does not work:

$ ssh -T
Enter passphrase for key '/home/thege0/.ssh/id_rsa':
authenticated via ssh key.

You can use git to connect to Bitbucket. Shell access is disabled

$ git clone
fatal: could not create work tree dir 'deflation-made-simple': Permission denied

Please advise.

The problem was overcome when I by-passed the password for the private-key with the following SHELL commands and realized that cPanel's GIT Version Control feature and Bitbucket are incompatible.

$ eval $(ssh-agent)
Agent pid 11772
$ ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa
Enter passphrase for /path/to/private/key/id_rsa:
Identity added: /path/to/private/key /id_rsa

After insuring that I -- not root -- owned the new directory that I created to hold my cloned repository I entered the destination folder with the SHELL cd command.  While in the folder I followed with the following Bitbucket git command.

git clone

I suppose that I must now create a repository out of the cloned files and folders with the

git init

and subsequent commands.
